Is Mr. Jagdeo’s day of reckoning coming soon? – commentary

Is Mr. Jagdeo’s day of reckoning coming soon?

Jagdeo at News Conference

Former President Bharrat Jagdeo

June 22, 2015 | By | Filed Under Editorial

Note: – Court case continues at the Whim Magistrate’s Court today – June 22, 2015.

The nation waits with baited breath as former President Bharrat Jagdeo and his phalanx of lawyers trek to the Whim Magistrates’ Court today to answer charges of alleged racism.

All eyes will be on the young and perhaps the most beautiful Magistrate, Charlyn Artiga, who gained prominence when she threatened to issue an arrest warrant for Mr. Jagdeo, who failed to attend court. It was a very bold decision by Ms. Artiga to discipline Mr. Jagdeo who had always felt that he was above the law.  Continue reading

We have not done enough talking on power-sharing – Eusi Kwayana

We have not done enough talking, grounding, conferences on power-sharing

eusi Kwayana (90) -in 2014

Letter: By Eusi Kwayana

Dear Editor:  Mr Tacuma Ogunseye, arguing the case for Africans, has raised the issue of power-sharing as it can play a part in the governance of Guyana. My own view is that while he stands out as a voice for the future of all Guyanese society, he recommends marches as a means of achieving it. We need means that inform, educate, or appeal to reason or goodwill. He is in Guyana, and I am not, and perhaps he believes that none of these matter any more.

Political marches of one race, from when they started, and regardless of their cause, have terrified others. We do not seem to realise that what we have not done enough of is grounding, talking, conferences, on these important issues.   Continue reading
